Why is EVERYONE talking about Hypnobirthing ??
Choosing Hypnobirthing for your Birth Preparation
One to one classes in Birmingham & Birth Prep Weekends
Recommended to start from 20 weeks...
Everyone seems to be talking about Hypnobirthing, your midwives may have trained in it and even Kate Middleton used it, but what exactly is it and why do you need to know about it?
A hypnobirthing course is a set of very comprehensive antenatal classes where the approach is positive and focused on natural birth. Hypnobirthing is not however only for natural labours and can be applied to any birth setting with any set of circumstances including inductions and cesarean births.
Don't let the name put you off! There is nothing woo woo about a hypnobirthing course! You will not be hypnotised like you may have seen on stage or have anything unusual done to you. All teachers are different but my approach is not spiritual instead it is focused on scientific facts that the guys in the room love!
The 'HYPNO' bit refers to your natural state of deep relaxation. A hypnobirthing course teaches you how to harness that relaxation, how to bring it with you to any situation and also explains the huge list of benefits staying relaxed and calm has on your birth experience.
You will also learn how to re-write the associations with birth in your BRAIN. Most of us have only ever experienced birth on TV and lets face it - they love a drama!! But birth does not have to be scary and using self guided hypnosis scripts, positive stories, images, videos and affirmations you will create a set of tools to change your bodies reaction to the idea. Believe me thats important!
Hyonobirthing courses also cover, birth place choices, pain relief options, breathing techniques to help you stay relaxed, simple birth anatomy to clearly see just how that watermelon gets outta that hole! There is a bit just for birth partners to help them be your ultimate cheerleader, help in creating your birth plan and packaging your hospital bag. A hypnobirthing course will give you the INFORMATION you need to approach any of the many possible paths of birth!
My Hypnobirthing workshops are laid back, informative and designed to prepare you confidently for your baby's birth. Whether you are planning to have your baby at home or in hospital - this course will guide you and your birth partner through the essential preparation and techniques you need to feel in control of your birth experience.
Many hypnobirthing courses promote natural, easy and sometimes pain-free births. While I know that these are all possible for some people I prefer to coach you through preparation that will allow for all circumstances.
By doing the course you will;
Feel confident that your body was designed to deal with the journey of labour
You will understand how to use natural comfort measures
Have a deep knowledge of your ability to influence your birth experience
See how you can calmly deal with any of the choices ahead of you
Sounds good doesn't it?!

"It was the most perfect birth experience and we wouldn't change a thing. I can wholeheartedly say that we wouldn't have had the confidence to progress with a home birth without hypnobirthing and your support. There is also no way we would have stayed as calm and as positive without everything we had learned - it was totally invaluable."
